Wigton takeaway ordered to close following regulations breach

A takeaway site in Wigton has been ordered to temporarily close after it was found to have breached coronavirus regulations. Its owners have also faced a subsequent fine following the breach.

Cumbria County Council is now urging anyone who visited Wigton’s Shuhag Restaurant between Monday 9 November and Tuesday 18 November to seek a Covid-19 test as soon as possible, whether they exhibit symptoms or not.

It comes as the council said that after a follow-up visit by both public health officials and Cumbria Police yesterday, the restaurant has been ordered to temporarily close.

Colin Cox, Cumbria County Council’s director of public health, said: “We need everyone to play their part in stopping the spread of coronavirus. We’re all in this together, so if you have symptoms of coronavirus please self-isolate and get a test.

“If you have been contacted by contact tracers or have been asked to get a test, please follow the advice.”
